Is this game going to get less frustrating? Getting kinda annoyed.

Is this game going to get less frustrating? Getting kinda annoyed. I feel like I may be underleveled but the only side quests I have are kill x type things and escort quests that seem to go all the way across the map. I dont necessarily mind the difficulty but things just feel really unfocused right now. I'm on the part where the guy outside the castle is giving me quests (wyrm quests?). I did one easily, one has Mason who seemingly has disappeared and is not where the quest marker says, and I just completed the water altar one where this happened:
>i also have along the escort quest guard lady to bring to the shadowfort because it seems like these are in the same area
>get to the priest and proceed through the dungeon
>all goes well until last ogre, he kills both my non-main pawns by knocking them into the water behind him
>escort gets separated from me, dies somehow maybe from poison. No idea what happened to her
>kill myself to reload to where she was still alive
>she still dies right next to me for some reason
>have to drop a ton of stuff to somehow carry the 5 retardedly heavy tablets to bring to the priest that you can't turn in one at a time for some reason

This shit was just frustrating and unfun. I can't get that escort quest back at all. Is the whole game like this?

      Most of the stuff here i would write off as just get gud on my part, although the thing with the escort was frustrating because I dont think I did anything wrong there. It was the ridiculously heavy quest item that drove me to make this thread.

        protip, give the slabs to your pawns and just take them back when you need to turn them in.

          My other two pawns got insta-killed by the ogre at the end knocking them into the water behind him. Had to figure out how to have all 5 between just my main pawn and I which required a good bit of dropping. Didnt drop anything too good I don't think but it was still pretty annoying. Mostly because I was doing just fine until they got instant killed, wtf am I supposed to do about that?

              Warp where? I could have warped back to the main city but then I would have had to run all the way back which would take like an hour at least, and that's if none of the enemies respawned which I have no idea if they would or wouldn't

                Casardis has a riftstone right there, it's also closer to the altar by two meters or so

                Lol yeh, as I said the items I had didn't seem super good enough I didn't want to drop them. Mostly lizard scales and skins which were kinda heavy. Just didn't seem worth teleporting out and going back to keep. It takes forever to move around in this game. The weight restrictions are seriously frustrating me, places where you can store stuff are very sparse

                Yeah I know, I didn't want to have to warp back, store the items and run back to the dungeon which would take about an hour because of how remote it was. So I dropped shit to carry the tablets instead. Not complicated

                Get a riftstone and carry it with you.
                Place it when you want to go back to the city and warp back to it and pick it up.
                It's rudimentary fast travel before you have enough to place down everywhere.

    You can actually complete watergods altar at the start of the game, there's a jump that let's you skip ahead to draining the water and collecting the slabs. I just grab them and put them in my inventory for when the time comes. With good chest RNG you can even get one of the vanilla endgame swords: Eden's Warden.

    It's perhaps the most overrated Gankercore game.

    It's bad at being a party based RPG
    It's world building is shit
    It's Waifus are shit
    Having to use other people's Pawns is jarring, just let me create all three, see first point
    >this Pawn sees only water
    What's the point in having a Party based RPG if the party members are lobotomised personalityless drones? See first point

    Honestly its just a far worse version of Dragon Age Origins

    Why does no one play arisen mage when it's the easiest early game?
    >start with grand ingle, which is strong enough to carry you through bitterblack isle at the start of the game
    >levitation, grab treasures and camp and kite things like chimeras in the arena
    >aimable spells, even more camping and killing enemies way stronger than you with zero effort
    >becoming sorcerer at level 10 will give you access to emphasis augment at rank 2, which is busted
    >Staying mage until rank 6 will give you access to holy boon (rank 3) AND focused bolt
    >Holy Focused Bolt can deal retarded damage to literally everything in the game

      less mobility.

      I ran up to it and a bunch of tentacles started attacking, was I supposed to get an item from it? Might have gotten it, will have to check later. If I didn't than fuck I dont feel like going back down there. Guess it wouldn't take that long...

      They don't start attacking until you specifically interact with the center of that area. There are a few others scattered about the map, including one in the Shadowkeep in the small jail area.

    This game is very badly balanced. It's only really hard at the beginning but then suddenly you get overpowered and the rest of the game is such a breeze that you get bored. Even easier if you get some weapons from Bitterblack Isle early on.

      the enemies that spawn once the dragon is dead do (depending on your level) spike up the difficulty again

    The sidequests are just a way to generate rewards while you're doing more important stuff. As for the other stuff, get a mage pawn with the level 1 Anodyne spell that way the fucker will actually cast it instead of charging it for hours without doing anything and have your pawn carry all your heaviest shit that they cannot use. Pawns are very important early game. Learn enemy weaknesses too, such as popping Cyclops in the eye, or burning Griffon's wings. The pawns you hire will generally know a bit about various monsters and you can learn by listening to their chatter. Just take your time with it and then once you get into big boy endgame tier power levels, make character builds that curbstomp everything on hard mode without any help.
